25 Huge Movies Disney Just Cancelled

24. Ben Affleck's Monopoly Crime Movie

Monopoly Mcdonalds

While a lot of the movies that just got binned were the inevitable video games, prequels, reboots and remakes, Disney's cancellation spree also means we won't be getting the potential adaptation by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon of the 2001 Monopoly McDonalds crime conspiracy.

It might have been easy to dismiss the story from the combination of Monopoly and McDonalds, but it was genuinely compelling, having been published by Jeff Maysh in The Daily Beast. It would have told the story of how ex-cop Jerome Paul Jacobson rigged the McDonald’s Monopoly game in 2001, allegedly working with organised crime to steal millions of dollars and ensure nobody won the game's biggest prizes.
